The crew behind VR MMO OrbusVR has been extraordinarily beneficiant with the sport’s post-launch help. Huge function updates, content material additions, expansions, and new options have all been added to free, however now they’re shifting to paid DLC content material.
Actually, I’m shocked it has taken this lengthy. Non-subscription MMOs like The Elder Scrolls On-line have been utilizing this format for some time now with nice success. The DLC will embrace 10-15 hours of latest content material, 5 new zones, Three new armor units, 2 new weapon units, pets, mounts, housing furnishings items, and achievements. Nonetheless it won’t embrace new lessons, harvestable objects, new potions, the next stage cap, or something that may give DLC purchasers an edge within the recreation as a complete.
The primary ‘Mini Story Pack’ for OrbusVR is ready to be a story-focused DLC aimed toward exploration and questing, separate from the remainder of the sport, and is due out in Q2 of this 12 months on all platforms (PC VR and Quest) for $9.99. In accordance with a current e-mail from the corporate:
“For the primary Pack, we’re displaying you a unique aspect of Patreayl and taking you to a number of mini zones inside the present overworld the place you’ll befriend and help a society of sentient lizards. We’ll be introducing a few new mechanics, in addition to throwing it again to unique Orbus by bringing again just a few previous enemies.”
This pack of missions begins in Pierre’s store the place you might be tasked with finding a lacking lizard aided by a newly created gadget that permits you to shrink issues and folks. What follows is a type of Bug’s Life-esque journey it appears like the world over’s many “micro-ecosystems” in the hunt for the lizard.
OrbusVR is anticipated to get 2-Three story DLC packs this 12 months, together with this primary one with plans for a bigger enlargement sooner or later doubtlessly after these are out.
